Good Friday Old Friend!

Happy Good Friday everybody! It is a beautiful day in Southern Ontario with the sun shining and it is almost sweater weather!!

Well, not really sweater weather, I am still wearing my winter coat to the barn, but the sun is shining and it feels GREAT!!

I am so behind on my challenges on Splitcoast Stampers, but I jumped in and did the sketch challenge on Wednesday --a bit late mind you--but I had things happening!! Exciting Things!!

Marcie, Jake and I went to lunch in Petrolia today at Actor' (ohmygoodnessitisthemostfabulousplacetoeat!!) with Kraftin' Kimmie and Phebe, The Town Scrapper! What a grand day!

I met so many fellow stampers who are just as enthusiastic about stamping as me!! woohoo! It is always so fun to find people who stamp and then you honestly stop thinking you are the nutty one!!

Let's see if I can remember everyone!

Of course, there was Kim, Marcie and little Jake, Lin from Chatham, Diana (Kim's mom), Connie, Maria from Sarnia, Phebe, and of course, Ellen who own's Actor's and- crap I had to jump over to Kim's blog to see who else - I forgot the other lady's name - Irene - sorry Irene!

I ordered the Sally Field salad which was a mixture of spinach, strawberries, mushrooms, red onion and a bunch of other "good for you" stuff with a fabulous tangerine dressing! Yummy!! Like I said - FABULOUS!!

On to the sketch challenge which was this sketch but I turned my card sideways because I think it fit the sentiment and picture better.

I used the background stamp of itty bitty dots from All That Scraps - it fits so great over your cards and more!! It is BIG!

The Patterned paper is Ginger Blossom from Stampin' UP! and the ribbon is May Arts from All That Scraps.

I stamped GinaK's baskets of happiness stamp on Very Vanilla and coloured it with my copics..... and glittered the flowers up with the copic spica can't really see it but it is too pretty!

Oh my gosh! I keep forgetting to tell you that I LOVE GINAK! I mean, honestly, I do!

Yesterday's mail came and there was a little package and I knew I wasn't expecting any happy mail! except Papertrey Ink but that will be awhile probably :(

I opened up my package and out came 6 copics ciao markers!! Oh mother, I forgot I joined the Copic Club,(how you forget that, I'll never know!) I love her - I really do.....!!
